Vladimir Film Festival

Bryg­ger­i­ets Gym­nas­i­um at Vladimir

Fažana / Main square / 22 / 9 / 2022 / Film

At Bryg­ger­i­ets Gym­nas­i­um, every­body is in deni­al dur­ing winter. In our minds, we’re out skat­ing and swim­ming in Fažana, Croa­tia. In our dreams, we’re at the Vladi­mir Film Fest­iv­al. In real­ity, we’re sit­ting in math class, star­ing out the win­dow at the sun that will most likely be set by the time we fin­ish learn­ing how to incor­por­ate let­ters and ran­dom sym­bols into our quad­rat­ic func­tion. But the deni­al keeps us going. It keeps us motiv­ated. We wear sunglasses dur­ing winter to give us the illu­sion that the sun hasn’t set, it’s just dark because we’re wear­ing our sunglasses. Hope­fully someday we’ll be wear­ing these same sunglasses in Croa­tia while doing front­side airs and sip­ping on an ice cold lem­on­ade [editor’s note — just you wait until you learn about Tibor’s rakija]. But until then, we’re here to share our deni­al-dreams with the rest of the world. So wherever you are in the world, wheth­er it be sunny Croa­tia or not-so-sunny Malmö, buy these sunglasses and you will see the class of 2022 attend the Vladi­mir Film Fest­iv­al. — Han­nah Bertram
